LA150 COM>OSING: A COURSE IN WRITING This course will employ the methods of Macrorie, Coles and Butler. On the assumption that bad writing is less a matter of grammar, spelling or even of "outlines" than it is a matter of engagement and on the assumption that the bad writer is basically a dishonest writer (although that dishonesty is often confused with an idea of "giving the Instructor what he wants") this course helps the writer locate a voice and also helps him recognize what it means to have a real subject. The readings In the course are used as examples of the act of com- position and not as means for generating discussion of ideas, themes. Issues and so forth although obviously such discussion is sometimes necessary. The texts, for the most part, will be the actual pieces of writing produced by the students themselves. The students will be asked to write on a regular basis. The aims of the course are several: To demonstrate that writing is a recognizable and achievable skill, to let the student discover that he has something to say in a distinctive way, and to show that writing can be an engaging albeit difficult and sometimes frustrating activity. LA151 WAYS OF WRITING ABOUT LITERATURE This course is not in itself a survey of genres or of literary history, although the superficial structure of the course might be based on such a model; but rather, the course will concern itself with the question of how does one respond to a piece of literature. Since there are a number of approaches to literature, too many to be covered in a one semester course in any depth, the particular methods as well as the particular works employed in the course will vary with the instructor; but it is important that the student be introduced to and be given practical applications for several ways of approaching literary works. The student will have already had some exposure to literature in LAISO but only as models for their own writing. In this course the aims are to show that there are a number of different (and "correct") ways of responding to literature and that these approaches can be mastered with a certain degree of skill. It is also hoped that the student will see that these approaches can be applied to non-literary arts as well. - 16 - COURSE DESCRIPTIONS LA250 PERSONALITY AND CREATIVITY The concerns of this course are twofold: to provide a general ov- erview of some major theories of personality and human development and to see what relevance these theories might have in understand- ing or explaining the phenomenon of the creative artist. LA251 SCIENCE AND THE ARTS The aim of this course is to give artists who want to know how sci- ence affects our culture some idea of how science grew up. We shall read J. Bronowski 's The Ascent of Man and discuss such subjects as the origins of man and his culture, his interest in materials and the growth of metallurgy and chemistry, his interest in mechanics and astronomy and the growth of physics, and his interest in the world of nature and the growth of biology and medicine. Several papers and a journal will be required, in which the student is expected to develop an ability to handle simple scientific and philosophical concepts in a clear and readable fashion. LA350 HISTORY OF THE ARTS This course will be a survey of Western art with as much cross in- dexing of the various arts as possible. It will also attempt to integrate as much as possible social and intellectual history into the discussions of various movements, styles and artists. Again it is hoped that this course will feed off of the earlier courses in the sequence and reinforce the skills learned there. LA351 AESTHETICS This course, it is hoped, will grow out of the concerns of the first two years. The basic questions: What is the nature of art? How is it defined? Can it be defined? Where is the work of art located? Is there such a thing as an aesthetic experience? will be asked. Students will be asked to read the major attempts to answer these as well as other questions and to apply them to specific works and events. LA450 ELECTIVES The electives, as opposed to the first three years of the sequence, should be more fluid, perhaps more experimental, and certainly more responsive to the desires of the students. They can be approached from a variety of points of views. They can be seen as extensions of the history course or the aesthetics course. They could concen- trate on a single important question, or a major figure in the arts or influential on the arts, e.g. Freud, Marx, Levi-Strauss, or 17- COURSE DESCRIPTIONS LA450 ELECTIVES (continued) they could grow out of the shared interests of a team of Instructors working In different areas. These courses would have no necessary permanence about them and could change radically from year to year. MlOl- INTRODUCTION TO MUSIC (3-3 cr.) 102 This is a required course 1n the Core Curriculum designed to familiarize dance students with the musical literature of various musical periods, especially that of dance music. Other topics to be discussed are various kinds of imjsical materials, musical structures and the tenporal aspects of music. 18- INDEX DEGREE PROGRAMS Bachelor of Fine Arts 1 Bach, of Fine Arts in Dance Ed. 1 Associate Degree 2 CURRICULUM Core Curriculum 3 Ballet Major 4 Modern Dance Major 5 Theater Dance Major 6 Associate Degree 7 Dance Education Major 8 COURSE DESCRIPTIONS Acting 13 Dance 9-15 Electronic Music 13 Functional Music 15 General Education 15-16 Intro, to Music 18 Liberal Arts 16-18 Voice 14 COLLEGE OF THE PEF(FOF^II^ A^S SCHOOL OF DANCE FACULTY BIOGRAPHIES BALLET IRENE CLARKE— Graduate, Combs College of Music and the Philadelphia Dance Academy.
